When it comes time to plan your company’s end-of-the-year party, you may be tempted to throw a standard potluck or cocktail party. However, keep in mind that this party is meant to be a reward for your employees’ hard work over the past year. In other words, make sure they have fun. Bowling parties are the perfect option for a staff celebration at the end of the year, and here are three reasons why.
Why Bowling Makes for a Great Corporate Party
1. Team Building
Encouraging your employees to form teams and bowl with one another will help them build relationships in a more casual context. Best of all, they’ll learn to work together in new ways. Consider organizing employees by department so they can work with their fellow team members while enjoying a bit of friendly competition with the other teams. You can also up the ante and reinforce the team-building benefits by offering awards to the winners. Make it more fun by giving out humorous awards and individual prizes as well.
2. Increase Morale
Throwing a bowling party for your staff is a great way to boost morale. It shows your employees that you care about them as individuals and want to thank them for the hard work they do. End-of-the-year parties are also the perfect way to allow teams that normally don’t interact to get to know each other personally. These events will translate to greater positivity and cooperation across departments.
3. Boost Productivity
One of the most exciting benefits of increasing your staff’s morale is seeing the boost of productivity that accompanies it. Happier employees are more productive employees. Throwing a bowling party at the end of the year can usher your staff into the next year feeling refreshed and filled with company pride. They’ll be happier, more relaxed, and closer to their coworkers. All of this will translate to a willingness to work harder and more effectively.
